BudeStrings Ukulele Tuner

This page contains the tuner and tuning details for Ukulele. In order to use the tuners, simply click on the string buttons and a tuning note will play. For best results ensure you are using desktop speakers – onboard laptop or mobile phone speakers will not be very effective for this page.

If the tuners do not work properly, Internet Explorer users may have to enable Javascript and Firefox users will have to make sure they have Quicktime installed. Alternatively you could all do yourselves a favour and install the Google Chrome browser.

Tuning the Ukulele to itself:

Self tuning a Ukulele is more complex than tuning most string instruments, as the string pitches are not sequential. Arranging the strings sequentially according to pitch (1 being the lowest pitch, string 1 being the topmost string on the instument) gives the following pattern:

  • 1 = string 2
  • 2 = string 3
  • 3 = string 1
  • 4 = string 4
  • It is possible to tune the strings to each other according to the following pattern

    • C string [fret 7] = G4
    • C string [fret 4] = E4
    • E string [fret 5] = A4
    • It is possible to use an octave tuning method of sorts on the ukulele, except between the G and C strings, which must be tuned according to equal pitch

      • C string [fret 7] = G4
      • E string [fret 8] = C5
      • A string [fret 7] = E5
      • It is not possible to use harmonic tuning methods on the Ukulele
